Favourite Pairings:Naru/Hina, Sasu/Saku, Neji/Ten, Shika/Tema, Lee/Saku.
Pairings that just plain creep me out: Sasu/Hina. No, just, no. Neji/hina. They're family! Incest is just not cool. Any yaoi Naruto pairing. Come on people, there is never any mention of the guys not being straight, so don't make it otherwise. Apart from Orochimaru... yeaaaah. Let's not go there. (For now)
I must also admit that I'm not really a big fan of harem fics. Yeah, I know that some of them are extremely well written, but me? I'm more of a monogamous type of guy. Call me old fashioned or whatever, but the idea of sharing the one you love? Doesn't really work for me.
Stuff that I've seen
I was born in South Africa, Durban. Moved to Australia to get a better life to put it frankly. Seen a lot of stuff that will probably result in me having to visit several shrinks in my elder years. Had some happen to me as well. Let's see, I've been in seven different car accidents, had to take a cat scan after one of them and an MRI after another. Worst one left me with a ridge in my skull that goes for twenty centimetres. But no scar. Yay! I've had my house broken into four times, two cars stolen, not including the one that got lifted by a policeman. I've seen a man get shot four times, I've been shot at myself. I've seen a car go down a hill out of control with its wheel on fire after hearing the surprisingly soft thuk, thuk, thuk, sound of bullets tearing through its metal when the car was right in front of me. I've had one of my best friends run over by a bus. The driver was drunk. (Don't drink and drive. It's not worth it.) He survived for six days. By the end of it, his parents were praying for his death. I've been betrayed by my best friend and beaten by groups as large as fifteen different guys. I've seen the light fade from a person's eyes.
But I've also seen things of incredible beauty. I saw my little sister and brother when they were just hours old. I've seen people risk themselves to help others. I've seen the faces of many pretty girls who I sometimes can't help gawking over. I've seen the love in a friends eyes as he watches his soon to be bride walk down the aisle. I've seen the joy in my grandparents and cousins faces after we saw each other for the first time in seven years. I've seen the loyalty and determination in a comrades face as we fight side by side. I've seen the sunsets of the beaches of four different seas. I've seen the glory of my Gods creation, each and every day, from the simple beauty of morning Rose, to the awesome majesty of a pair of bull elephants fighting all out. I've seen laughter in the face of those that I care about or respect, and smile knowing that I am the cause of it. I've seen trust and love in the faces of my precious people.
Point is, I've seen a lot of shit, and I haven't even mentioned half of it yet. But you gotta count your blessings. And I am blessed.
Random Information about me:
Yes, I am religious. I would even go so far as to say very religious. Some people may go for atheism. I prefer to believe that there is a Heavenly Father who watches over us. Otherwise, what purpose is there to life?
Even so, I've fought in the schoolyard, the park and the streets. First started when my former best friend and a gang of his groupies decided to beat the tar out of me every day at school. Can't even remember why. At first, I tried turning the other cheek, like my parents told me. They hit that one as well. So Dad said: "hit back" and I did and hard.
I read more than what is good for me and sometimes, okay, pretty much always, procrastinate when I don't have the right motivation.
I've dabbled in Karate, Judo and Kendo. Never really use any of it in a proper fight. I suppose you could say I'm a regular street fighter.
I've fought with most of my mates at one time or another. The stories are true. After kicking each other around the block a couple of times, you can become friends.
I'm six foot nothing, was the school athletics champion in my 12th grade, played district basketball, and hockey. One of my favourite games also happens to be chess. I also happen to have successfully competed in a couple of trumpet competitions, both band and otherwise. Don't judge me.
I'm the type of guy that everyone, and by damn, I mean everyone tells their problems to.
Family means everything to me. Hold them close. I can be a proud stubborn idiot, more so than most people I know and it's got me into trouble before. But no matter what happens, don't let those you love, your precious people, ever get away from you. They are what makes life worth living.
I'm told by both friends and family alike that I am far too generous with my cash.
My imagination runs completely rampant, all the time. Last time I actually went through it, I worked out that i've got the entire plot lines for thirteen different books in my head. Sometimes it feels a little full. I'm hoping to get some of them out of my head and onto this site.
I'm not sexist, but I do believe that women should be treated with respect, so opening the door for them, talking politely, pulling out a chair when they're sitting down, yeah stuff like that, I'm not above any of it. I treat girls as equals, sure, but that doesn't mean that I treat them like I would my brother or best mates. Some call it pampering, I call it chivalry.
Despite all this, or perhaps because of it, I am completely without a girlfriend and always have been.
I find myself completely unable to understand women.

'and the willow sayeth unto the ninja: wherefore dost i weep? 'tis tears of joy, as thy kin and mine together fell thine foes, who would bring the axe and torch to the wood. the log ist thine ally, and mine kin. calling upon the log, is to call upon me. to aid thee in battle, i weep my tear of joy.
'as the log takes your place, you become the log. the log becomes you. for a moment, you are an extension of the logs blessing unto ninja.'
'you are fools! your log is but a mockery of the power of ninja!- the ninja from the desert declared. and the people shook their heads.
'and as the smoke cleared, his foe stared in awe at the log. blackened and charred, the log crumbled. the ninja, filled with righteous wrath, fell upon his foe and slew him. he made his way to the log, and wept. his companion, the log that had accompanied him through so many battles, was no more. he spoke thus to his fallen companion: though now you have fallen in battle, you rest where the logs forever grow. the forest of life called for you, and you answered its call, as you did mine. i thank you my friend.'
'he despaired, for in this place of stone and earth, there was no logs to be found. reaching out with all his might, he begged for a log in the forsaken wasteland. and he was answered, and saved by the log, in a place where there were none.
'the log took his place and fell, forever into the abyss. the people, hearing of this, railed against him, in such numbers he swore to never endanger another log again. for many years, he fought without the log, growing more and more weary with each passing day. finally, he came across a foe that was too strong for him. as his life was about to end, he felt a familiar pull, and found himself out of harms way, seeing a log in his place. his stunned foe was felled in his stupor, and he approached the log, he knew it, for it was the same that fell so long ago. he asked of the log: why did you endanger yourself for me again? have you not done enough for me? and the log spoke: it is my duty, and our bond. we exist to save the ninja, and they exist to save the trees. we both play a part, for which i am content.'
Let it be known that it is absolutely forbidden to willingly perform the technique known as "1000 years of death" on a log. It is also equally frowned upon for one to replace oneself with a holy log for the purpose of avoiding said technique. The punishment for such actions is at least 6 months of banishment from the use of the holy log.
